Coconut Deep conditioner

This week has been so hectic and I have been tied up looking after poorly people left right and centre so it's been a quiet week on the blog.  I thought I would post this pampering tip and wish  you all have a lovely weekend.
Coconut oil has many uses not just in the kitchen but in beauty products as well.  One of it's simplest and oldest uses is as a deep conditioner for hair.

 Wash your hair with your normal shampoo and then take some coconut oil and rub it between your fingers until it melts (coconut oil is solid below 24'C) work the oil into the end of your hair and scalp.  Wrap your hair in a warm towel or use a shower cap if you prefer and leave the coconut oil on for a couple of hours.  If your hair is really dry you can leave it on overnight.  Rinse the oil out of your hair using your normal shampoo - don't use conditioner.  Dry and style your hair in the normal way and enjoy your lustrous locks.

  1. Ooh, love it! Thanks! My hair is an absolute disgrace at present and really needs something like this. I often use Boots coconut spray-in conditioner and it is indeed really good for improving dryness. Great post!
